Reggie White and Jerome Brown: Producer’s Notes

A Football Life, Chip Swain, Philadelphia Eagles

Click here for our complete collection of posts on the biography series, “A Football Life.”

It’s a curious process trying to tell the story of a man you’ve never met, nor will you ever get to meet. You really have to trust that the people telling you about him are telling you the truth and not just what they want you to hear. In compiling interviews for this documentary, it was clear that Reggie White had a long lasting impact on the people he met. Not only was he a great player, but he was a great person who loved life and lived it to the fullest. In this clip, you get a little insight into what type of person Reggie was: fun loving and genuine. To me, the story about his approach to his “street corner ministry” tells you all you need to know about the man often called “The Minister of Defense.”

The series will continue Thursday, September 29th at 10pm/ET with “Reggie White and Jerome Brown: A Football Life” on NFL Network.
